The brief

As one of premier real estate brands, LJ Hooker has a responsibility to their many customers right across the country. With multiple offices working with sales, leasing, commercial and residential, LJ Hooker needed a robust solution that could support some 600 individual websites being created. These 600 websites were created from 5 full structured sites across commercial, residential, investing, corporate and rural.  

Considering the nature of the property market in Australia, LJ Hooker needed the ability to customise information for local branches, allow for posting and modifying posts in an instant. The use of responsiveness technology to capture the customer on the go was essential. 

LJ Hooker has a workforce that is reliant on the proper presentation of sales and leasing information. The aim was to create a seamless back end content management system that was appealing, accessible and reliable.

Solution

As a leading content management system with the ability to support multiple iterations of the same website, Kentico CMS was the perfect choice for the LJ Hooker project.

For 5 months, Webcoda worked with the LJ Hooker team and their chosen external designers to create a seamless user experience. We also created content management systems to specification and to cater to the requirements of the umbrella company as well as those 600 other interest parties.

We hand coded scripts for the Kentico CMS to enable integration of key features. Kentico scripts were generated to facilitate creating the appropriate template websites with the requested baseline features as well as manage these custom additions.

The website integrated some wonderful features such as the ability to give virtual reality tours, adapt to multiple systems and fit neatly into LJ Hooker’s existing systems and technology.

Outcome

The LJ Hooker websites were launched to specification and by the stated delivery time. 

Creating LJ Hooker’s websites took 5 months from engagement to deployment. This is a mammoth undertaking for any web development service company.

A testament to the health of the Webcoda code was the usage of continuous deployment to launch the 600 sites without error. This automated process saw multiple pieces of code from different Webcoda developers come together harmoniously. The code was checked in, found to be clean and without error, and the websites deployed in a continuous process. No additional work or on the fly troubleshooting was required.   

Analytics have seen a strong result in both traffic increases as well as conversion of search and click through.

Another element of the project is that Webcoda actively seeks feedback on all projects after deployment and in the subsequent months. This allows clients to provide not only initial feedback on the project, but to also capture any issues or requirements once use has begun in earnest.

All 600 websites have been given the opportunity to provide feedback. Not a single complaint has been recorded. The majority of the feedback indicates we have exceeded expectations. The clients are happy and the project has been incredibly well received by the LJ Hooker team.
